Finally the horse is finished - 9 months from start to finish although the knitting actually only took about 2 weeks, the procrastinating took a while longer. As usual my knitting skills outshine my sewing skills and whilst the horse looks ok it is not perfect (and I am a bit of a perfectionist). I had such difficulty sewing the legs on....in fact they were sewn on, cut off and sewn on a number of times.
It also seems funny to have used acrylic wool for the body and then used Rowan Kidsilk Haze to make the mane - sort of defeats the purpose of making the body machine washable! But I just loved the blue colour of the kidsilk haze so had to use it.
I must admit I am happy with the way he turned out - sort of sad looking but entirely loveable!
